DWC-900

Video Wall Controller

The DWC-900 is PanoTek's entry-level video wall controller, packaged in a stylish micro-tower case and offering up to 9 video outputs each in full HD resolution. The six-output version is 4K capable. The unit can be ordered with hardware capture ports and H.264 stream decode. The DWC-900 has been designed for super-quiet operation and is therefore "at home" in the board room or office environment.

The PanoTek DWC-900 is a versatile controller system for display walls requiring up to 9 digital video outputs, each in full HD resolution. Powerful options include multi-port 4K video capture and multi-stream IP decode-encode capability. Based on leading edge Matrox® graphics technology and supplied in a stylish, brushed aluminium microtower, the DWC‑900 is ideally suited to boardroom and collaborative environments.

Visual content from captured video sources, IP video streams, user desktops and local assets can be positioned and scaled anywhere on the entire wall canvas without being constrained by individual screen boundaries. In this respect, PanoTek DWC solutions are demonstrably superior to conventional matrix-style switches and scalers.

The DWC-1200 includes our "basic" edition wall control software as the default ordering configuration. However other software options may be selected to suit different applications. The DWC-900 system unit is specifically designed to be deployed in office environments; the optimised cooling design minimises noise emission from internal fans. With high quality components throughout, the DWC-900 is the ideal choice for boardroom applications, video conferencing, security monitoring and high impact retail.
